Interesting thought

The other day, I met a few friends, and we came to talk about what they would want to achieve before turning 30. And I thought to myself,
“Shit, that’s not very far away.”

And of course, they mentioned the normal things that I’ve heard what most guy n gurls would say; wanting to own a house, earn 5 figure, settle down, get married, own a BMW, but amongst it all, there was the desire to be walking in the plans that God had for them.

Then it triggered me.

“What if God’s plan was never for all of us to achieve what WE want before 30?”

What made us think that Blessing us equates to earning 5 figure? Interesting huh?

24Then Jesus said to his disciples, "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 25For whoever wants to save his life[a] will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it. 26What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? 27For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father's glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done. (Matthew 16:24-27 NIV)

So, what do YOU want to achieve before you hit 30?
